Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has admitted that he loves his detractors. According to the legendary boxer, haters only add motivation to him.
“I haven’t fought for a long time, but for many countries I am the champion. I am the champion of those countries that do not even speak my language. These guys want to see me again. Of course, I do it for the sake of the whole world. The fans want to look at me again. Of course, I know that these people are envious. I understand that envy is cool, I like it. Envy is very inspiring. So I give people a lot of inspiration.
I love haters, they inspire me. Without them, I’m nothing, just trash, “said Mike Tyson on the Jimmy Kimmel Live TV show.
We will remind, Tyson also told how he managed to lose 45 kilograms before the exhibition fight against Roy Jones.
